in washington kentucky senator rand paul has spent 2013 raising his national profile. first it was the 13-hour filibuster. then a big cpac speech that helped deliver a straw poll victory. and today senator paul is wading into the immigration debate in a big way. putting his support behind a path to legal status for millions of illegal immigrants. joining me now for the daily fix, chris cillizza, msnbc contributor. and managing editor of postpolitics.com and charlie cook, msnbc political analyst and founder of the cook political report. and charlie, i'll go to you first, we'll get chris to chime in on this. i was taken aback that rand paul went out on this limb to a degree, because he was really setting himself up as the right-wing presidential candidate. this separate 0ing up a flag on the immigration front. that someone like a tom tancredo did in 2008, could exploit rand paul if they wanted to. >> it could, but i'm looking at it on the first level, is that this is a remarkable speech. here we have the person who has become pretty much the most important tea party figure in the entire country.
, documented after we made sure all voters had id. we are going to begin with paul, and in each case, each of them will be asked the same question. [bell rings] there is the bell. we are ready to go. it is round one, question one -- america -- isn't that magnificent? i can see why you would get distracted. america is the world's policeman. >> get over it. >> thank you, tucker. it is a beautiful facility. to the extent we are willing to let crazy people romp through our neighborhood, yes, we are the world's policeman. we are not the world's social worker. to the extent that we take it upon ourselves the goal or the false obligation to bring universal sufferance to countries, make sure that people can listen to madonna, bring about democratic elections, that is not our job. we're good at building roads, crushing opposing armies. no government is good at the work of nation building, including ours. then there is the obama wave. find and concord. i do not want america to be in the business of turning every land into combat for democracy -- not democracy. >> they decide they will go to kill som
proponent of spending. nobel prize winning economist paul krugman. then, the race for space. is america losing? china is building its own space station and the u.s. has to rely on russia to send our astronauts up to the stars. what is going on? >>> and the exploding middle class. in more than seven years it will triple in size to almost 2 billion people. it will change the world. we'll talk about how. >>> but, first, here's my take. those of you who follow the show reg lerly know i have long argued that cutting government spending in the midst of a weak recovery is not a path towards growth. but i have also argued that america does have a debt and deficit problem and we need to take it very seriously. the fact is, the vast majority of our debt problems relate to the costs of health care in america. now that the debate over obama care is over, we should start thinking about how to get america's health care costs under control. as it turns out, two new works, a book and a magazine cover story provide some very useful ways to think about it. the central debate between democrats and republi

as well. i can remember being a young reporter in the '90s, covering pope john paul ii's visit to denver with a youth group from mexico and seeing what a beloved figure he was, there with president clinton, of course, and even more beloved that his successor, pope benedict. what in your judgment, can this pope, could he, should he do to cullivate that relationship with this country? >> well, i was a very young bishop at the time in washington state, and that was the first time i went to world youth day with a whole lot of young people who sold tacos endlessly in order to afford a chartered bus, and i was moved by it because they were. i saw how it changed their lives, had a huge impact on that diocese, but pope benedict wasn't as extroverted. he was a kind man, a shy man, and he wasn't used to showing that in public, and this man is a pastor, first and foremost, he spent all his life being close to people, especially the poor, close to his own brothers in his religious society and also to the people he served in a large diocese in very difficult times, so he's a man of integrity, and tha
giants, john paul ii and benedict roxvi introduced an er in which the cathric church offers confident rebuttal to the false promises of the secular world. how would you like to see pope francis influence american political debates? we have so many of them, whether it's abortion or gay marriage, how would you like to see that impact? >> i think he simply has to preach the gospel and then do it in a way that is accessible and the holy spirit makes the impact, we believe. conversion of heart and mind is not something any pope or preacher can do. that depends upon god's grace, but you have to prooech the gosp gospel, and he'll do that. in a sense, you can say there is no god and freud is his praufrt, so for the sake of sexual liberation, we're allowing a lot of things to be let go. we'll see what happens. we can only trust that the lord is still with his people and loved the world that his son died to save. >> your imminence, isn't that part of the struggle, what you're speaking about, preaching from the gospel? so many gathrics in the country see the tension between church doctrine and t
it was during the goldwater days. you're laying the groundwork for somebody like rand paul to win the iowa caucus us. chairman priebus made all the right recommendations. i would have gone further and said challenge your electorate. challenge your base. open up those primaries to independents. then you'll get republican candidates incentive to run to the center instead of to the right of rand paul. if those candidates win out you'll see democrats do very well in the midterms and four years. >> real quick guys, element number four of the cpac straw poll it puts rand paul in at 25%. marco rubio at 23%. so we have a leader there. our power panel, perry bacon, ben labolt, susan del percio. thank you. >>> university of central florida's main campus in orlando will reopen and classes will resume at noon eastern time. the campus was shut down, hundreds of students were evacuated after a body, weapons and explosives were found in a dorm room. authorities say the male found in this room appears to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. a handgun and explosive devices were found in that room

matt just articulated becoming more popular with rand paul, his filibuster and not totally isolationist but basically the idea that the u.s. can get involved everywhere they might want to. i think obama sees that. i think that is the direction politics is shifting after ten years of war. and, yeah. i think that is going to be the reality a lot of politicians come to grips with matt, what's the headline going to be? >> you know, obama tries to make connection with young people. >> succeeds? >> maybe. we can be hopeful. right? >> yeah. of course. we'll be watching closely along with matt welch. thanks, guys. good to see you here in our fancy new set with the map and everything. we also want to tell you about some developing news out of nevada. just happened this morning. seven marines killed. at least seven wounded during a live fire exercise at the army's hawthorne depot in nevada. nbc's jim miklaszewski is at the pentagon for us. mick, what can you tell us? >> reporter: chris, u.s. military officials tell nbc news that seven marines were killed and at least seven others wounded in an ex

a chance really to see firsthand the rolling out of what we call the ryan budget. paul ryan as the chairman of our budget committee once again leads, i believe, the intellectual and thought process on talking about the future that we should have in this country. certainly the budget is that primer, that guiding post, that opportunity for us to lay out a philosophy about what republicans stand for, and today the american people are having a chance to hear from our colleagues, the democrats. of course as you listen to our colleagues, our friends, the democrats talk, everything about a budget is all about if you're a republican, us harming the middle class, us ruining the country, headed in the wrong direction. that is because they have taken the simple approach to they will try and fund everything. they will try and fund hospitals. they will fund airports. they will fund schools. they will do all these amazing things. and the facts of the case are is that that process and that future does not work. paul ryan yesterday, before the rules committee, very carefully, argued the point that really i

to the downside. connell: going to breaking news out of washington with the house approving congressman paul ryan budget. cheryl: peter barnes is live from capitol hill with more. peter: the members of the house are now popping out of town like a pack of easter bunnies. they have approved paul ryan's budget that would balance over the next ten years. let's start with the continuing resolution to keep the government open for the rest of the year. it does not stop the sequester, but does give the pentagon the way to implement them. this would repeal obamacare to save about $1.5 trillion. it would budget additional spending cuts totaling about 5 trillion over ten years. this is just a blueprint. it is dead on arrival over in the senate. now, the president will be releasing his budget sometime next month. two months late one republic leader noted in this air of arch madness. >> we still have no budget from the president in violation of the law. he gets his ncaa bracket in on time, but still no budget. this is the fourth time. >> it is founded on the failed idea that giving another round of tax cuts w

think it compares to paul ryan's budget. >> guest: there are two major differences. they certainly go in different directions. the paul ryan budget balances in ten years and does not raise taxes. patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. so what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the $600 billion tax increase that obama won in january and the trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of, they don't know that they're hitting, they haven't gotten a lot of press attention, obama never talks about the trillion dollars of tax increases starting this year for obamacare. so 1.6 plus 1.5, that's a $3 trillion dollar tax increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passed. and, of course, it never balances because they turn around and spend another, um, more money, hundreds of billions more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. so they do more spending with more taxes. what the ryan budget does and why i think it's very interesting for the republican future is that it reform

the litmus test is elections. paul ryan was on the national ticket. he basically argued as did mitt romney, on the very well thing that the house republicans just passed. and the voters cast farvotes for more votes for u.s. senate candidate who is were democrats and far more votes for democratic candidates for the house of representatives. so that's the way we resolve these differences in our country, by elections. it was not really a very close call? >> the fiscal issue has not been resolved i. of course, it hasn't been resolved. hold on, mercedes, let's acknowledge what has happened, the deficits have dropped now for 3 straight years at a rate lower -- faster pace than we have seen since the end of world war ii. nobody wants to acknowledge that. but they are coming down because we did have to engage in emergency spenning when the chitanked and we are coming out of that. we have to have balance -- that's good. but what is really good is job creation and a strong economy. we are seeing the effects of austerity. they would trade our economy for theirs in a success. in realtime, as consequen

it and if you do, we're going to attack you, paul ryan, because you have a creative, insightful way to preserve medicare and make it more healthy in the future and put it on a sound path, we're going to say you're trying to destroy medicare. he's got a plan to save medicare. bring it into the 21st the -- te 20th century --, 21st century. ought to be discussed openly and fairly, not demonized. that's the level of debate we're in here. so in private we talk to our colleagues and they say yes, we need to make changes, rereally do. well, when? and when the paper is printed, the budget is printed, it's not there. it's not there. so there's no reform of the fundamental drivers of our debt. we also know that last year we spent $750 billion on 83 government social welfare programs, means-tested programs. that is, if your income is below a certain level, the government deems you worthy of subsidy of some kind. now, these 83 programs, many of them are duplicative, there's not a coherent focus to them that endeavors to help the people really other than giving them money. giving them aid. there's not a suf

of the republican party, the future is with neither. and i think rand paul winner of cpac's straw poll illustrates that. >> we'll see. will cain, lz, thanks for playing today. >> you bet. >>> the opening bell just rang on wall street and guess what, the dow is down just about 79 points right now. al wlis siclisoison kosik is li. what's going on? sdl the dow is off its lows of the session. we did see the dow fall as much as 100. and this is about the tiny island country of cyprus that need as bailout. but this is being watched closely because there is a condition for to get its $13 billion bailout. the proposal on the table here for those who live in cyprus is if you have a bank accounting you'll be taxed one time on your deposits. so if you have $129,000 in it or less, you'd have to fork over about $9,000. that's a 6% tax. actually 6.7% tax. so people obviously getting nervous about this tax over the week weekend, they rushed to withdraw their money. but keep in mind lawmakers are still working on this proposal trying to come up with something a little more equitable. some proposals are being floa
think we know it is happening. if you look at the youth and our party like marco rubio and paul get and many others, you the idea. we have great hispanic leaders like ted kreuz. i think we have done a real lousy job sometimes of bragging about the success that we have had. when it comes to diversity we have made great strides. i think we'll have a lot of options in 2016. reach out toe to the african-american community, what are your thoughts on insuring every vote counts of? >> we're not going to bore you with the details in the republican national committee. we believe that we need to make it easy to vote in hard to cheat. if that can capture everything that we believe in as a party. it should be hard to cheat. that is something we have endeavored to do. ondo have some restrictions ballot security. questions about cpac where a panel on african-american voters dissolved into a shouting match with at least one activists voters are being systematically disenfranchised. given that backdrop and the party, how do you plan to overcome those challenges? >> for one thing you have to show up
in strong support today of the balanced budget put forward by my friend and chairman paul ryan. and the reasonable and practical approach that this budget committee has taken while they budget hardworking taxpayer dollars. mr. speaker, this budget debate goes deeper than spread sheets and focuses on the longevity of the american dream. today we are considering a republican budget that actually balances in 10 years. calls for pro growth, pro job tax reform -- pro-growth, pro-job tax reform and strengthens medicare for our seniors and future generations. while in the senate harry reid and patty murray are considering a budget that never balances. it increases taxes by $1 trillion and let's medicare and social security race towards bankruptcy. and it turns medicare into a program that rations benefits to seniors. make no mistake, washington is approaching $17 trillion of debt and more than 12 million americans are unable to find work. the decisions we make will either sink us deeper into debt or put us on a path that encourages job creation and restores the belief that if we work
yes. 11% say no. it's not just john boehner who said it's not an immediate problem. paul ryan, the face of fiscal responsibility himself this past weekend on one of the sunday shows said not an immediate problem. so americans have gotten the message that it is a problem and that we should be tackling it right now, even though our lawmakers feel it can be down the road a year, five years, whatever we tackle it. >> brian: our next guest has nothing to at to this subject. so i'll move on. >> steve: he does. he's going to -- >> brian: he's coming out of his chair. solar companies were supposed to boost our economy. now evidence they might be tanking our economy. you remember solyndra that cost american taxpayers more than $500 million. turns out it may have a successor. >> steve: months after opening, the oregon based solar panel company, solo power, is facing layoffs, putting 250 million of our taxpayer dollars in jeopardy. apparently stuart varney, we learned nothing from solyndra. >> no, we have learned absolutely nothing. the president is now doubling down again on green energ
. secret generated by huntsville. they went on to say it is a major target. fbi spokesman paul damon said do you believe specific centers targets? what are the targets? >> they are targets and recognize that as a significant threat. we have a program called agent in the lab where we host agents to 17 of the research facilities and laboratories around the united states. they are embedded in research facilities to better understand and address that threat. we also have a national security higher education advisory board. we try to educate the leaders of these universities as to the threats that can occur at our target their research facilities. i would say probably has gotten exacerbated in the realm of digital information and cyber attacks. you no longer have to rely on an individual becoming your asset to gather the secrets in the cyber arena. it is just as easy to have somebody familiar with a cyberworld sitting in shanghai are beijing or some place in russia to attack the networks and export the information. a threat is more substantial than it was 10 or 15 years ago. >> i wrote to you
on immigration reform from say senator marco rubio and also senator rand paul put heavy emphasis on the border security. so where do those proposals go if we have no way of measuring whether the border is actually secure or not? >> rube yos people -- rubio's people tell me, that immigration reform proposal he will have very strong requirements on border security. strong metrics. requirement of measurable border security. the problem is, the bigger problem is, that congress can pass an immigration reform law but it depends on the executive branch to actually enforce that law and "the new york times" reported a couple days ago after this hearing i was describing that president, that homeland officials did not come up with a measurement of border security because president obama did not want to create an impediment, an obstacle on path for citizenship of millions here illegally. there is basic conflict that congress wants to pass a law requiring certain actions on the border security and executive branch that doesn't agree with that. jon: the president will be talking about immigration and perhap
of representatives today. this is a budget by paul ryan that will allow us to get to balance. that means the government will stop sending more money than it takes in by the end of the decade, which is really exciting. what that allows us to do is to get the economy rolling, jobs being created and provide more certainty so young people coming out of college know there is going to be a job in their field. those in the workforce will know they will be needed. those in retirement, social security and medicare and those will be strengthened and security. an exciting time. guest: -- the: when it comes to continued resolution which funds the government through september, did it include sequester cuts that took effect earlier this month? spending atcludes the sequester level. there is flex ability for the military, department of defense and a few other areas that allow money to be moved to areas of greater priority. the house republicans passed to that thest year so across-the-board cuts did not occur in the way they have occurred. we felt there was much greater flexibility. we need to be wiser
on arrival. they will try to find some middle ground but if it comes down to if paul ryan thinks he can get rid of obama care then this thing is going nowhere. i think the house is going to have to give a little bit and the senate will have to give a little bit as well, but certainly something is going to get done this time. >> patricia as we move to our next topic with you, happy anniversary. we're three years in obama care as of today. so where do things stand? >> this is a huge, massive bill that's starting to have pieces pulled apart from it and we've seen the senate again just pulled apart a piece of the funding mechanism. we see a number of governors opting out of the exchanges. there is no federal funding to implement those state exchanges and the senate has not funded it. there are a number of hurdles just to get through to the january 1st implementation of the individual mandate and i think that's when we're going to have the big test. do people's insurance premiums go up. what do americans do when they start to pay fines for not having insurance. are the exchanges set up so they c
. well, paul ryan repeals but he doesn't replace. and you know what? we don't need to have it replaced. we need to keep the affordable care act in place, moving america in the right direction and helping health care be affordable both to families and to business. we cannot allow the ryan budget to stand. but just being against an idea isn't good enough. and this is why we support the murray -- the murray budget, because she preserves the affordable care act and she continues to emphasize those reforms that we made in quality and prevention and integrateive services. we know how through those quality initiatives we can save money and save lives. others will also speak about medicare. i cannot believe that we're going to replace medicare with a voucher. a voucher and a promise. so let's get rid of -- not deal with the health care needs of the elderly, let's get rid of the financial needs of the federal government. so we'd rather protect billionaires than protect senior citizens. i think we've got our priorities wrong. others will speak to medicare. i want to go to medicaid. and i want to
and they are pleased to affirm, and the point is house budget committee chairman paul ryan released a budget proposal that is most -- is the most reckless austerity plan he's ever proposed. instead of a budget that will slow -- instead we get a budget that will slow the economy and kill jobs. we urge you to vote for the progressive caucus' back-to-work budget which will grow the economy, create seven million jobs and ask the wealthy and multinationals to pay their fair share so we can make investments in our people and our future. 105,000 citizen co-sponsors in less than 48 hours. with that, let me introduce co-chair of the prodepressive caucus mitigating circumstance friend the gentleman from minnesota, keith ellison, for two minutes, thank you. the chair: the gentleman from minnesota is recognized -- recognized for two minutes. mr. ellison: thank you, mr. chairman. i would like to just congratulate everybody with the progressive caucus an thank all the staff that did such a good job preparing this excellent budget which gives us an amazing choice as americans, to confront this jobs crisis. i'm so p

. host: in the house, they passed the paul ryan plan. happened when it arrived in the senate? it was one of the first thing that senate democrats wanted to do. was not quite a party line vote because there were some conservative republicans and others who voted against it for various reasons as well, but by and large it was a party-line vote. amendmentsare the you're keeping your eye on? >> one of the interesting things with thatn, the buds while it only takes a simple majority vote to adopt just about anything as an amendment to a budget resolution, there are some of votes in which you are loo looking at to see whether 60 senators will support the concept, so that lawmakers have a sense of if they actually were to go down the road and serious legislating on the subject area, that they would get the 60 votes to overcome a filibuster, and a future point. we have a few of those. there are amendments like an attempt to either terminate or reduce the federal sugar subsidy program. there is not an amendment to endorse the idea of allowing states to collect sales taxes for online purchases, an
